ACWORTH - When Nina Brante was about 5years old, her mother learned something interesting about her.
"I think it goes back to her kindergarten teacher," said Sheri Brante, Nina's mom. "She said, 'Nina has one of the highest emotional IQs of anyone in the class.'"
Nina, who is now 17, has proven her kindergarten teacher pegged her right as a kind, goodhearted soul who believes in doing things for others.
Two years ago, she help found Strength in Stilettos, an organization dedicated to empowering teens girls through not only helping them purchase affordable prom dresses, but by providing college scholarships to deserving girls who show academic promise.
Strength in Stilettos collected more than 400 formal dresses and sold them at a huge consignment sale, in which the sellers made money on what they sold.
